Four year old reluctant to learn

Question

Our four year old daughter is usually confident and independent. However, she tends to shut down and give very little effort when we try to teach her big new skills, like riding a bike or swimming. She will whine and cry about the tiniest set back and seems to give up before even starting. We don't know if it is spoiling her to allow her to give up and not follow our instructions. How hard should we push her in this situation?
